Radovan Karadzic’s Sham Trial and Conviction
by Stephen Lendman
Bosnian Serb leader Karadzic during Washington’s rape of Yugoslavia in the 1990s was wrongfully convicted by the Western controlled International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) on 10 of 11 false charges - sentencing him to virtual life in prison unjustly.
Victor’s justice assures victims pay for their high crimes, Karadzic charged with two counts of genocide, five counts of crimes against humanity, and four counts of violations of the laws of war in his capacity as the Bosnian Serb Republika Srpska president from 1992 - 1996, part of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Alleged genocide at Srebrenica was more myth than massacre. Deaths were hugely inflated, the ICTY established to blame Serbs for war crimes committed by both sides.
Fantasy genocide was used as a pretext for saying never again, cover for waging US-led real genocidal wars, ravaging and destroying one independent state after another, responsible for millions of deaths, vast destruction and unspeakable human misery.
Srebrenica was a combined Muslim military base and refugee “safe area.” Serbian President/Federal Republic of Yugoslavia leader Slobodan Milosevic, wanted Serbs restrained from overrunning it.
Before the alleged July 1995 massacre, falsely claiming 8,000 Muslim Bosniak deaths, Srebrenica-based Muslim forces carried out numerous attacks on nearby Serb villages.
Muslim Sarajevo officials withdrew their Srebrenica commanders, leaving thousands of soldiers leaderless.
When Bosnian Serb forces captured Srebrenica on July 11, 1995, civilians wanted to leave because of chaotic conditions.
Women and children were separated from men to locate perpetrators of raids on Serb villages and take revenge.
A small number alone were detained. Alleged Srebrenica victims reflected lies and half-truths based on what's known but omitted in official and major media accounts.
The 8,000 number included the Red Cross estimate of 3,000 “witnesses” allegedly detained by Bosnian Serbs, as well as another 5,000 the Red Cross said “fled Srebrenica, some of whom reached Central Bosnia.”
They fled for safety and weren’t killed. Years later, forensic teams discovered 2,361 bodies where heavy fighting occurred - including combatants on both sides, not massacred civilians.
Washington exploited Srebrenica to conceal its supported Croatian offensive, forcefully removing Serbs from Krajina, responsible for more deaths than alleged at Srebrenica, facilitating the rape of Yugoslavia, balkanizing it under US control.
Milosevic (killed by medical neglect at the Hague), Bosnian Serb military commander Ratko Mladic and Karadzic were declared guilty by accusation - how longstanding US-led Western injustice always works.
